Blackmagic Unveils New 6K Super 35 Camera

Blackmagic Unveils New 6K Super 35 Camera

Australian camera and software company Blackmagic Design expands by adding a Super 35 alternative to their Pocket line of cinema cameras.

After achieving great success with their URSA Mini Pro and Pocket Cinema Camera 4K cameras, the company breaks new ground as they turn to the area right in-between those cameras.

As usual, internal battery life is limited due to the small formfactor — in fact it's rated to 45 minutes of recording 6K raw at 24 frames per second, with the screen brightness set to 50 percent.

The new Pocket Cinema Camera 6K supports the following codecs:

  • ProRes 422 HQ QuickTime
  • ProRes 422 QuickTime
  • ProRes 422 LT QuickTime
